Meet the Quantum Computers: Exhibition, Research Labs Tour and Hands-on Experience
Date : 9 - 10 Oct 2021
Time : 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue : SciHome, Room 1401 (Lifts 25/26), 1/F, HKUST


This exhibition provides you with a first encounter of a real quantum computer. Although a general-purpose quantum computer with thousands or even more qubits are still far from reach, in this exhibition we feature a prototypical quantum computer with two qubits. The system uses the nuclear spins of the phosphorous and hydrogen atoms in a dimethylphosphite molecule to define a two-qubit quantum register. These nuclear spins can then be initialized, addressed, and subsequently read-out using nuclear magnetic resonance techniques. In the demonstration and tour, you will witness how the qubits can be manipulated and observe, in real time, the results of a quantum computation. The development of quantum computers is only at infancy; you are now part of the witness. Welcome to the future.
